Determination

To accept defeat is to walk away never to try again

To challenge and observe superior competition, while not limiting ourselves to one opponent, is to learn different strengths and strategies from different leaders. Through loss we gain knowledge; in collective form we become less vulnerable to the pitfalls of defeat and become more confident as a rival to what was, at one time, a superior. To swallow our pride on occasion cognizant of defeat does not suggest that we are losers of sort; it merely states that we are nourishing our determination to succeed at higher levels by presenting ourselves higher expectations.
